Measure out all the spices and combine them all together with using a spoon or a hand whisker.
Remove the neck and the pack from inside of the turkey (you can do whatever you want with it). Rinse the turkey. Cut off all the excess fat. Rub entire turkey (inside and out) with olive oil. Sprinkle the mixed spices onto the entire turkey (inside and outside).
Place the turkey into an oven bag, and then transfer it onto a turkey pan. Place the turkey in a fridge for at least 12 hours for the turkey to soak all the spices in.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cut mushrooms into half or quarters. Cut lemon and onion into wedges. Sprinkle 1 tbsp. of all-purpose flour into an oven bag as instructed on the package (it should prevent the bag from bursting, although the bag did burst once for me).
Remove the turkey from a fridge 30 min before cooking. Pack 3 garlic cloves, cut vegetables, and carrots on the inside of the turkey. Place remaining of the vegetables on the outside of the turkey. Tie the bag with a bag tie provided.
Place the turkey on the lowest rack in the oven. Cook the turkey in the oven for 4 hours or until the temperature probe registers 165 F. Remove from the oven let the turkey cool for about 30 minutes.
Cut the bag open and carefully transfer the turkey onto a platter. Place all the cooked vegetables that were on the outside of the turkey onto a platter next to the turkey.
